1964 Buick LeSabre

Selling my 1964 BUICK LeSabre convertible which I have nurtured with tender loving care -- andhave enjoyed for over 10 years.It is a true rare "survivor" vehicle....

This car runs &drives excellent and looks new in every way! Perfectly straight and balanced – one could drive this car reliably to Florida (or anywhere else) using 1 finger on the steering wheel! This is not a muscle car, but truly a great “driver/cruiser” which gets 20 m.p.g. on the highway and gets smiles from everyone. If you're looking for a reliable, quiet-running, smooth-riding, gorgeous"big old boat" from the 60's....that you will have fun driving and get smiles from everyone....this is the one for you! I am a retired school teacher in central Illinois, nota dealer.

Sky-blue (inside and out), blue canvas top w/flexible rearwindow, blue interior (vinyl, no tears). Immaculately clean, inside & out.

100% original, as it was in 1964. One excellent older re-paint. Believed to be the original color. Original flawless interior. No rust evident and none that I know of....

Comments from current& previous owner:

All previous owners (including current owner)were pet-free, non-smokers

"has not spent a night outdoors for at least 21 years"

No odors, a "#2+ car".Check out the NADA (and other) classic car guides!

Notes from current owner:

Willcooperate with buyer on sale and delivery terms. Email initially, through E-bay, with any questions

I drove the car from Bismarck, N.D. to Peoria, IL.non-stop (940 miles) totally trouble-free – at highway speeds and got 20 m.p.g. Halfway home, my wife commented, “this car rides smoother and quieter than the new Avis Rent-a-car we rented going to Bismarck”. I have since put onless than6,000 trouble-free miles and the car has never seen rain or snow since then (2006).

Oil and basic maintenance has been maintained regularly. U-joints replaced with new ones, 2010.

Turn signals’ mechanisms were replaced & cleaned in 2015

Horn was repaired in 2015, works great.

All lights work well, including the brights/dims and rear license-plate light.

Trunk fits tightly& does not leak at all, but rubber trunk liner needs replaced and a correct brand new “new-in-the-box” liner is included.

The original options and prices are listed in the Owner’s manual. Examples: fuel door lid chrome trim, $2.00 Remote trunk release, $7.00 power steering & brakes, $22 each. Side mirror, $4.95. Automatic headlight dimmer, $40.00

All records, paperwork, and maintenance invoices available.

Not working: clock (might need only a new fuse?) 6-way power seat has full power now, but is simply “off the track” which eliminates the "forward/backward" factor(needs lifted onto the "track" - power is there so needs simply to be lifted onto the track) ....Therefore iscurrently a “4-way power seat”.

This car would be considered to be above "High Retail" condition, but not a "100-point" car. If still interested, please carefullyreview the entire current NADA Classic Car Value Guide notes shown below -- it reveals that the Buy-It-Now price on this vehicle is very reasonable!...
